There is an OBD socket on the driver's side for checking the primary components in the vehicle's emissions.

Emissions

  • The warning lamp lights up: Emissions are deteriorating. Have the vehicle checked as soon as possible.
  • The warning lamp flashes under certain circumstances: This indicates that there is excessive misfiring in the engine.

    Reduce the vehicle speed and have the system checked immediately; otherwise, serious engine misfiring within a brief period can seriously damage emission control components, in particular the catalytic converter.
